    Epub John Gardner Ú Epub The Art of Fiction Epub ☆ The Art eBook Ó Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk fiction ebok, The Art mobile, The Art of Fiction PDFThis is Gardner's classic text of 'how to write' The incredibly arrogant tone and egotistical voice of Gardner drove me nuts at times but I plowed through to the endThe book's in two parts the first is a collection of four essays on literature titled 'Notes on Literary Aesthetic Theory' of which the first two were engaging and insightful The third essay was twice as long as any of the others and gave me the impression of how much Gardner is in love with his own ideas and how infallible he believes them to be nothing for me thank you The content of the fourth didn't engage me at all The second part of the book Notes on the Fictional Process contained three chapters on writing 'Common Errors' 'Techniue' and 'Plotting' Of these only 'Techniue' was useful and offered new input compared to most general wr

    Epub John Gardner Ú Epub The Art of Fiction Epub ☆ The Art eBook Ó Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk fiction ebok, The Art mobile, The Art of Fiction PDFIn The Art of Fiction John Gardner explains what it takes for a writer to create great fiction; it takes lots of hard work advice that is helpful than reading manuals that set unrealistic expectations through vacuous cheer leading On a practical note Gardner describes common mistakes and advises the writer on how to avoid them I was able to understand through Gardner's examples several mistaken tendencies in my writingSome of his lessons are now standard knowledge such as show don't tell—but also included are statements that I believe need to be shouted louder such as avoid sentimentalityI loved Gardner's explanation that a writer creates a fictional world and must assist the reader in the Vivid and Continuous Dream which means the un
